Meet Chris Shelton of Shelton Qigong and Morning Crane in Burbank

Today we’d like to introduce you to Chris Shelton.

Chris, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I started this business in a small office in Los Gatos, California, in 2001. At that time, I was a full-time butcher, a single father and a competitive martial artist.

I got to where I am today through perseverance, persistence, and hard work. I refuse to give up! Even when I had family members and mentors telling me I would not succeed, I refused to give up.

I utilize the Law of Attraction and creative visualization to co-create what it is that I want in my life and my career.

Through this process, I received many opportunities for my work to appear in newspapers, magazines, radio, and television.

The company has been through several variations throughout the years.

2012 was when we started servicing the LA area. That’s when Hollywood Physique Expert, Eric the Trainer, said to me “Chris, no one is doing what you’re doing down here.” He encouraged us to move to Hollywood/Burbank. He has been such a great friend and business mentor, referring many of his high-profile celebrity clientele. Last year, I joined Eric on tour with Def Leppard and Journey.

In 2016, we opened our office in Burbank where I provide hands-on healing sessions and training, keynote speeches, classes and workshops. Our clientele includes people of all ages and fitness levels, athletes, and celebrities.

I’ve lovingly and proudly become known as The Hollywood Healer.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Internal struggles, mental struggles, self-destructive thoughts and patterns have all been part of my journey. When I first started my QiGong practice, I got an offer to get into the health-care office in Los Gatos.

Out of self-limiting beliefs, I was going to say No.

At the time, I was a single father of two kids and I was working as a meat-manager. I didn’t know how I was going to go from managing a group of gruff-guys, and cutting up dead cows all day, to healing people.

I was barely getting by financially. I had personal struggles, having gone through two divorces (four kids) and several dysfunctional relationships in-between.

My belief in the healing powers of Qigong is rooted in first-hand experience. As a teenager, I had a heart attack and suffered from a devastating back injury that left me in constant pain and nearly crippled. Following my QiGong healing practice, I went from being near crippled to a martial arts champion in less than ten years.

I attribute my full recovery and success to Qigong, a holistic approach perfect for people who want non-invasive, affordable, and empowering healthcare.

I was able to break the patterns of dysfunction after I did deeper work with Qigong and NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming.)

By the grace of God, I was able to uncover the root of my pain and suffering, change my patterns, and uncover the life I had always dreamed of having.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Our QiGong practice offers private healing sessions and group classes to individuals and companies from all around the world.

In my private healing practice, I work with people from all walks of life; from couch-potatoes to elite athletes. We work with everything ranging from chronic pain and disease to depression, to the common cold and flu.

What sets me apart is that most people see and feel results and healing transformation after the first visit. We’ve helped thousands of people reclaim their health and enjoy their lives free from chronic pain.

I also give talks on disease prevention, how to beat burnout and tools to combat inflammation.

We have worked with Special Olympics teams, professional athletes and celebrities, all looking for deeper meaning in their lives.

We are on a mission to be of service to others and to help elevate the consciousness of humanity. We teach simple practices with profound results; movement, breath and mind focus techniques that improve health, happiness, and self-healing.

I can reproduce what I do in clinic (private healing sessions) and teach others what I do. The next stage of our business is to “train the trainer.” We have created online and in-person QiGong teacher certifications, and medical QiGong hands-on-healing programs, available to people all around the world, as well as a TV show on the healing transformations.

What were you like growing up?
As a kid, I had a lot of pets. I have fond memories of spending time with my dogs, cats, bunnies, rats (I had 30 rats at one point), snakes and even a pet squirrel. I enjoyed drawing, painting, writing poetry, and mountain biking.
